Jennie Garth is always looking on the bright side.

Nov. 22 will mark the first time the 40-year-old actress spends Thanksgiving without her three daughters, Luca, Lola and Fiona. "This is my first shared holiday," explained Garth, who split with Twilight's Peter Facinelli in March after 11 years of marriage. "Their dad and I are hammering out the details of that, which is weird. They're actually gonna be with him for Thanksgiving and I'm gonna be with some friends, and then I get to have them for Christmas." (Garth and Facinelli, 38, have yet to finalize their divorce.)

"We're gonna do our Thanksgiving on Saturday. I'm gonna make a whole meal, have them go shopping with me and help me bake everything, and my mom and her husband are gonna come over," the Eleventh Victim star said. "For Christmas, it's all about baking cookies -- anything sweet! -- and then giving them out to the teachers and crossing guard guy."

Luckily, Garth added, "today I realized that Christmas is around the corner! I'm gonna get back from Thanksgiving and it's three weeks away!"
